Pumpkin and chocolate.

Does that sound like a good combo to you?

If you haven’t tried the two together then I suggest making these gluten-free squares. Im pretty sure you’ll love the combo as much as I do.

I have cut back the sugar in this recipe by usingSwerve sweetener and stevia chocolate chips without of course giving up any flavour or deliciousness.

American thanksgiving is coming up right away so I thought I would get this gluten-free pumpkin dessert recipe out before then. These chocolate swirl pumpkin squares would be a great addition to your dessert table.

Gluten-Free Pretzel Nut Squares

gluten free pretzel nut squares recipe


Baking is really my true love in the kitchen and even though I probably have more than enough baked sweets on my blog I had to share another recipe with you.
Gluten Free Pretzel Nut Squares.
Why I especially like this recipe is that it bakes in a 9 X 13 pan. Why would that matter? I remember the days when my kids were younger and I needed squares for a kids party, a hockey wind-up, a family bbq or just another large party.
Having a square in a 9 x 13 pan means you have enough squares to feed a gang of people. I like that.
This square recipe is a perfect combo of sweet and salty. The bottom layer is sweet and caramel-like and the top is salty pretzels.
I warn you NOT to make these squares if you are not able to share them with a group. You will be tempted to eat them all and as someone who is working out at the gym a lot it takes a heck of a ton of pushups and sit-ups to burn the calories off.

Gluten-Free Pretzel Nut Squares

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup Earth Balance vegan “butter”, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups GF flour blend (I like to use Compliments gluten free flour blend that is available at Safeway and Sobeys)
  • 1 cup Earth Balance vegan “butter”
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp gluten free vanilla
  • 1 cup GF Glutino pretzels
  • 1 cup nut mixture (I used pumpkin seeds, walnuts and pecans)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 9 x 13 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer mix the softened vegan “butter” and brown sugar.
  • Add the gluten free flour and mix.
  • Pat crust mixture onto the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes.
  • Remove from oven.
  • In a small saucepan add the vegan “butter, maple syrup, corn syrup, brown sugar and vanilla and heat on medium-high heat.
  • Stir and let mixture heat to boiling.
  • Once boiling let cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Sprinkle the nuts and the pretzels over the crust.
  • Pour the hot liquid over the top of the bars.
  • Place baking pan back in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool completely before cutting.
  • Pour hot mixture over crust.
  • Enjoy!

Gluten-Free Matrimonial/Date Squares


It is that time of year again, when all thoughts are about baking Christmas squares and cookies. I, myself, want to be able to make all the great goodies that I grew up with and Matrimonial Squares were always a fav of mine.
Last year I tried a new recipe for a gluten free date square that did not work, and determined from there not to try making them again.
At Safeway the other day I spotted a fresh bag of pitted dates and it rekindled my desire to make a great Matrimonial Square.
This recipe does that.
In fact, I think it is better than the ones I used to have as a kid. That is a statement you do not hear very often about gluten free baking.

Matrimonial/Date Squares

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 3 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups gf oats(I use Only Oats brand which is non-contaminated)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 cup butter(melted)
  • 1/2 lb(225 g) chopped, pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions
 

  • Mix together the first 8 ingredients fully, then add the melted butter and gently stir until combined.
  • Set aside.
  • Cook dates and water in a pot on the stove, mixing periodically until a gooey paste forms.
  • Spray and line a 8×8 pan (I spray, then line my pan with parchment paper for easier removal of squares).
  • Press ½ of oat mixture on pan.
  • Spread date filling evenly over oat layer.
  • Top with remaining oats and spread out.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely before removing and cutting squares.
  • Enjoy them!!!
